Rural Transport (Sadberge, Darlington)

Volume 547: debated on Wednesday 4 July 2012

This is a petition on behalf of 127 residents of the small community of Sadberge in Sedgefield, who are deeply concerned about cuts to their local bus services. All bus services will be removed from that community at the end of the year.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Sadberge,

Declares that the Petitioners believe that in order to maintain a reliable rural transport network in Darlington Borough additional funding needs to be provided for rural bus services.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to ensure that there is funding in place to maintain the provision of reliable rural bus services in the Darlington Borough.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
